If you followed the Persepolis Lightman Shard game at all you probably heard a thing or two about DS-14, and ENL anchor for a blocking link, which was removed, along with the link. Reasons given ranged from safety to supposed inaccessibility, despite the fact that all the other portals in the same base were left in place. The one that was removed just happened to have hack mods and a blocking link. Lets not talk about how the dancing man below, somehow knew to throw a RES blocking link immediately after our link vanished. 

Then there was Cojo Ranch - also holder of an ENL link, also valuable to the ENL in the shard game, also removed. 

And now Lockheed Martin - ones the ENL used repeatedly for the shard game...gone.

All of the portals that were removed met portal guidelines - and in fact the official Niantic page asks that players NOT report them as none of them were on private residential property. (see  https://support.google.com/ingress/answer/3270467?hl=en)

Prior to today I just swallowed the pill. Whatever, I guess, the RES have a "community manager." The ENL do not have an equivalent face. I've tried to explain why this is to the newer players in our area, but I have no real explanation. I don't know. I've tried  to tell them he's technically there for all of us...but then gifs like this are made and portals are removed with his hand of influence, and it becomes really hard to attempt to say with a straight face that Joe is anything but a Resistance player on Niantic's dime who occasionally forgets to flip back to his blue account after being on his green account.

I don't know if he had a hand in Cojo Ranch or LM portal removals, but it is pretty hard not to draw a conclusion from gifs like this. It is pretty hard not to throw your hands up and say "what the hell is the point of sleepless nights and hours of time invested into all of this if Niantic employees are going to openly dance on the stage like this?" The pill is becoming harder and harder to swallow +John Hanke

**ETA** 

For all those who have had a lot of trouble reading, not once did I ask for Joe to be fired, for him to be tarred and feathered, or for him to be taken out back and beaten. I also specifically stated that I didn't know whether he had anything to do with Cojo or LM, and now, as it appears RES have confirmed that at least one agent bugged LM until LM contacted Niantic for removal, I can accept that explanation (however I disagree with the removal and the behavior of the agent(s?)). I know the number of a good eye doctor if you are having trouble reading the screen. 

Niantic could avoid creating such a frustrating environment for both factions if they took a hard stance on these kinds of portals, and then administered it fairly across the board. I stand by my feeling that a community manager dancing like this is not cool.

+Joe Philley​ is a douchebag. Glad I retired, more frustration than joy came from that game.

So I'm at Target, first thing Halloween morning, and they're taking down the candy and costumes. And... What's that back there?

That's right, Xmas.

Freaking Xmas. I guess we're just not doing Thanksgiving this year.

One more reason not to shop in Target, Kohl's or anything that passes for a brick and mortar department store anymore.

In the immortal words of Forrest Gump, "stupid is that stupid does" & Teddy (I'm from Canada) Kruse is "stupid" & he's from Texas. No more needs to be said.

Instead of controlling guns and inconveniencing those who would use them, we are rounding up and silencing a generation of schoolchildren, and terrifying those who care for them. We are giving away precious time to teach and learn while we cower in fear.

We had the same kind of drills when I as in grade school but instead of going to a closet we went Under our desks. The more things change the more they stay the same.

republicans can never change lightbulbs

to get rid of the old ones, they have to turn left
 
How many Republicans does it take to change a light bulb?

None, they'd rather sit in the dark and blame it on Obama
